The National Working Committee (NWC) panel saddled with the responsibility of overseeing the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary election in Lagos state, Nigeria’s commercial city, has dissociated itself from the ongoing exercise.
The committee opposed the option A4 mode used in the election, expressing a preference for secret ballot system.
Option A4 is a system where voters queue behind the agent or representative of their preferred candidates while secret ballot system is a process where a voter’s choice is confidential.
Concise News had reported earlier that Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who has the backing of the National Leader of the party, Bola Tinubu, is leading the incumbent governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, by a landslide in the results of the election announced at the time of this report.
The election, which was moved three times, commenced with the accreditation of electorates at exactly 9:00 am while voting commenced immediately.
The election is taking place in all the wards and local government areas in the southwest state.
